The scent of the sun-dried earth and the oak forest is right there with the characteristically tangy Marasca cherry note of Sangiovese.
The body has tension and shape without being heavy, there is freshness and bite: this was made for the table. This is pervasive and honest, has both impact and agility. The fruit -redcurrant, cranberry and Morello cherry- sings with purity on the finish. This has charm and character in spades.
